MMA fighter's eye glued shut, gets the win anyway

 

They say anything can happen in mixed martial arts, but what happend in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on April 12 never happened before, and probably won't again in this lifetime. We hope.

Carlos Alberto Lobo, was up two rounds to none after returning to his corner. In a freak accident, some glue from a banner that was being fixed dripped into his eye, and the fighter immediately rubbed it, gluing his eye shut.

The bout was initially declared a No Contest, but eventually it went to the judges' scorecards, and Lobo was rightly awarded the win.

The strangeness begin at the 15:00 minute mark:

They should hire Sabu as a cut man. He's got the experience necessary.

Could you sue negligence for that? I doubt the waver would cover something like that

Sounds like banner glue might work better to prolong fights than that vaseline and silver thing that Stitch is always pressing on people like a metallurgist witch doctor.
